‘Brontez and Rick’ goes to Outfest Screenwriters Lab 2012
Just heard some really good news. Travis Matthews’ new feature screenplay, ‘Brontez and Rick’ is one of five scripts to be selected for the Outfest Screenwriting Lab 2012 in LA. I had the honor of consulting on the screenplay during the drafting process, and I can say that it richly deserved this accolade. Let’s hope that it will help take the development process forward, and that the movie will actually get made!
Here’s what Outfest says:
“Since 1997, over 2000 scripts have been submitted to the Outfest Screenwriting Program. What began as a screenwriting competition has expanded into a dynamic three-day, mentor-led workshop in Los Angeles for selected screenwriters. The authors of five screenplays will be invited to participate in an intensive laboratory during which they will work closely with Lab Mentors — established writers who will critique and encourage their work.
To be held in June 2012, with a follow up event during Outfest 2012, the lab will include sessions with other industry professionals, structured career development opportunities and participation in ongoing festival events. Past Lab Fellows have gone on to a variety of successes including production of the first Outfest Screenwriting Lab script! Click here to read more about it.”
